Teaching & Assessment Resources
Created by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), MedEdPORTAL promotes educational scholarship and collaboration by facilitating the open exchange of peer-reviewed health education teaching and assessment resources.
Maintains a rigorous peer review process based on standards used in the scholarly publishing community. Published authors receive a formal citation for their accepted publication.
Features educational resources that have not undergone the formal MedEdPORTAL peer review process.Posted resources are related to educational innovations that are being developed, implemented and tested within the health professions. Sample resources include programs which aim to change curriculum at health institutions or frameworks for educating learners on newly adopted patient safety protocols. As opposed to tools formally peer reviewed and published in Publications, iCollaborative submissions can include conceptual ideas that have yet to be classroom tested.
MedEdPORTAL CE Directory
Provides practicing health professionals with the ability to quickly search, find, and access high quality evidence-based, credited courses that have been developed by faculty or staff from non-commercial health institutions. The purpose of the CE Directory is to promote the availability of CE credited activities in support of patient care, lifelong learning, re-licensure, and maintenance of certification goals.
DREAM: Directory and Repository of Education Assessment Measures
DREAM is a "one-stop shop," peer-reviewed, searchable repository of assessments that have been used in health science education samples. Our goal for DREAM is to provide easy-to-locate, applicable information about assessment instruments to educators and persons doing health sciences education research and program/curriculum evaluation. If you are a developer of an assessment, we invite you to include your tool in DREAM, increasing exposure of your assessment and bringing consistency to assessment within health sciences education
